Parker v. 20th Century Fox is certainly a fun case to teach, and it raises all sorts of interesting policy questions. In my class, I show a sequence of Shirley MacLaine images purporting to illustrate the facts of the case. Unfortunately, copyright concerns prevent me from posting them here. The image at left (available from the Wikipedia commons) hardly reflects her success in the case.
Anyway, here it is, the last (for now) in my collection of contracts Limericks:
The studio's conduct was terrible,
And the actress's damage repairable
Only with a lead part
In a great work of art:
A film that is at least comparable.
